Free Family Concert

Ferret in the Orchestra

Come out, come out for a FREE encore performance of Sarasota Orchestra’s Young Person’s Concert! After a week of sharing this hilarious program with thousands of fourth and fifth graders from area schools, the Orchestra invites you to bring the whole family for a night of symphonic capers and belly laughs. In a narrated concert of high-energy classical music and popular favorite tunes, the live orchestra lights up listeners of all ages.

We will be taking photographs at this event. You or your child’s likeness may appear in our social media or future marketing.
